Knox County, Tennessee Schools (and the rest of the state) dodge some bullets with growth models

As predicted, the introduction of growth metrics as an alternative method for achieving adequate yearly progress has reduced the number of schools identified as failing. 8 schools met AYP using the new growth standard. Overall the number of schools not making AYP dropped from 159 to 96. More details about the response to being on the failing lest are available here.
